Changed some parts that have only made this bike better, not much lighter though.

-EC90sl's have been replaced by XXX-lite tubbies. (cool story with these, were the wheels Chris Horner won Sierra Road on last year at the TOC)...These wheels feel a little stiffer than the eastons, but don't have any of the bearing and preload cup issues I had with the EC90's. Braking has been more than adequate with bontrader cork pads.
-DEDA stem replaced ritchey wcs and slammed a little more.
-Ritchey aluminum bar replaced with EC90 SLX 3 bar.
-Black SRAM Red chainrings

Aesthetically, my favorite BMC frame of all time.

Also love what you've done with the build--Good solid component selection and fantastic color coordination. 8)

+2 from above. I think that's why the impec kinda looks a cousin to this more than the team machine. Saw a nice example of this one in the blue last weekend, was actually envious!
